Critical Chance

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Critical Chance.png Critical Chance is the probability that an attack will be a critical hit. This can be raised with precision, traits, skills, and weapons. The boon Fury.png Fury grants a flat 25% increase to critical chance in PvE and 20% in WvW and PvP.

Without any equipment, traits, skills, food or utility items, a character's base Critical Chance is 5% independent of level.

It is calculated for each hit and not each skill use. That is to say, in multi-hit skills, each hit has a separate critical hit chance.
